Annual maintenance on Cape Town’s Table Mountain Cableway has been extended this year to six weeks instead of five, from July 8 until August 18.

The renovations include the replacing of cable car ropes and more. All the planned changes are to ensure an improved visitor experience.

Visitors are asked to hike with a registered guide and follow safety guidelines.
